Is there anything interesting about its design?
The Trailhawk is the most striking-looking of all Grand Cherokees. There's the matte-black bonnet decals to reduce glare, 18-inch off-road alloy wheels with WWII Jeep icons (take a look at the images), and recovery hooks the colour of your face when you have to be towed out of the surf after thinking it was a good idea to put your boat in there.
Ah, but even the best get bogged sometimes, it's all part of the adventure. And as a bit of assurance, there is the Trailrated badge on the side which is worn by all the most off-road-capable vehicles made by Jeep.
Making it a bit more adept off road is the Trailhawk's 36-degree approach angle, 22-degree breakover angle and 27-degree departure angle. The posh but also off-road-capable Overland grade sits above the Trailhawk in the range, and it shares those figures as well.
As for the rest of the Trailhawk's dimensions, at 4.8m end to end and 1.9m across, it's the same length and width as the entry grade Laredo and Limited, but shorter in height at just under 1.8m.
The cabin is plush and tough, a place where red-stitched Nappa leather seats with Trailhawk embossed badging meets big, rubbery floor mats that lay in wait for muddy shoes.
Compared to other large SUVs, many of which resemble used bars of soap in their sleekness, the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk is an unapologetic brick, and I find that appealing.
